If you are stuck for a last minute fancy dress costume i have Owl and Cat half masks. You can download, print and build these in under an hour.
If you have more time and you feel more adventurous try something with antlers. These are still pretty simple and great fun to build but take a little more time an patience.
Finally we have a bearded man. This is my favorite and probably the most versatile, think Santa, sailor or Lumberjack!
It’s not often that you get to see a truly masterful sauna interior design, but Canadian architectural firm Partisans has created just that. They recently installed a sauna on a private island north of Toronto with smooth and modern wooden panels that look like a modern reinterpretation of a sea cave, or grotto.
The beautiful sauna was pre-fabricated off-site and then brought to the location by boat. The elegant and smooth interior forms the perfect contrast for the sauna’s exterior, which is covered in rough, worn brown planks. The sauna is perched on a rocky outcrop that commands a stunning view of the surrounding bay through a large window.
Tom Poulsom, a gardener and tree surgeon from Bristol, turned his passion for birding into these amazing LEGO brick bird replicas.
Poulsom’s designs didn’t go unappreciated – 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas voted to start mass-producing 3 of his birds, and the first kit hits stores in January.
“I have always been a fan of LEGO, and a big admirer of the natural world, rekindling my love for LEGO two years ago and building what most boys would build, cars, trucks and spaceships, etc. However, being a gardener and a lover of nature I wanted to build something related to my job. One day during a break from digging in a customers garden a Robin Red Breast landed on my fork handle. This was the eureka moment behind what is now the LEGO Bird Project,” Poulsom told twobirdersandbinoculars.
Kumi Yamashita, whose mind-blowing shadow artworks have been featured before, uses a single, unbroken thread wrapped around thousands of nails to create stunning portraits of women and men.
In the ongoing series entitled Constellation (a nod to the Greek tradition of tracing mythical figures in the sky), the Japanese artist (living and working in New York) uses three simple materials to produce these otherworldly works of art.
Mana, the first artwork featured below, was recently selected as one of 50 finalists for the Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition, a triennial event being held at the Smithsonian Museum’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.
Yamashita’s artwork was selected from over 3,000 entires and is on display at the National Portrait Gallery until February 23, 2014.
This production only costs P100 (one hundred pesos) or $2 only! We wanted the shoot to be more practical because most of us were just students so we dont have that money to go more extravagant! We unleashed the creativity in us and find a shoot that can give more lux on our photo! Hope you like it!
From beautiful forests and deep fjords to snow-capped mountains and cold, arctic tundras, Norway has everything for people who love the outdoors. They recently made their money beautiful, so it makes perfect sense that the rest of their country is beautiful as well.
Norway is a geographical rarity because its length from north to south gives it one of the greatest varieties of environments in a single country in Europe – from deciduous forests to arctic tundras. It should be a far colder and icier country than it is, but its temperatures are somewhat regulated by the relatively warm North Atlantic and Norwegian currents. Nonetheless, its coasts are slashed by fjords that were carved by massive glaciers and ice sheets during the last ice age, giving its rugged northern coasts even more majestic charm.
Ivan Hoo, a talented hyper-realistic artist who has submitted his work to Bored Panda before, is back with more unbelievably realistic works of art drawn on simple boards of wood.
Hoo uses colored pencils, pastels and ink to create his realistic artwork. He works on boards of wood, which give the background a unique texture.
“I always love to draw realistic art or artworks that tease the eyes and the brain,” Hoo wrote on Bored Panda earlier. “By working on wood, it gives me a lot of dimension and ideas to create something close to reality and it works really well with pastels, too.“
These are 10 portraits of iconic personalities I drew in my own smoke style. I chose smoke because I like the way it looks, it doesn’t have defined edges and the combination of black and gray looks amazing. The posters are elegant and should suite any home decor. Before the start of this project, I searched all over the internet and couldn’t find anything similar.
I use different smoke photos and techniques that merge perfectly to manipulate misty impressions of iconic public figures and create striking portraits.
